It was announced on Thursday that Bob Dylan, influential singer and songwriter, won the Nobel Prize. The Nobel Prize is an award given in recognition of academic, cultural, and/or scientific advancements. Despite this being such a high achievement no one knows his thoughts on the matter because they are unable to reach him.
He won the award in literature for his lyrics covering social unrest and has it put on his official webpage under his “books” section with his lyrics collection, which got removed soon afterward. Other than that, there is no mention of Dylan winning the award.
The Swedish Academy, which is in charge of the awards, hasn’t been able to establish direct contact with Dylan.
“I have spoken to one of his closest associates,” said Sara Danius, the academy’s permanent secretary. No contact from Dylan himself has been established.
Dylan is currently on a United States tour and performed in Las Vegas shortly after his win was announced, but made no mention of the award. The body that gives the Nobel Awards has since stopped trying to contact him.
“It would be delightful if Dylan wanted to come to Stockholm in December, but if he doesn’t want to, he doesn’t want to,” said Danius.
They are hoping that Dylan will accept the invitation to accept the award in Stockholm on December 10.
